The Planning and Zoning Commission approved final plans for two developments and approved a site plan for a Burger King restaurant during its May 13th meeting, held via video conference.
The Commission unanimously approved the final plat for a medical marijuana cultivation facility located on approximately 6.5 acres at the east end of South Outer Belt Road on the south side of Interstate 70.
Randy Black with Missouri Made Marijuana LLC thanked the Commission and stated he looked forward to “being a good neighbor” in Grain Valley.
The Commission also approved the final development plan/final plat for the Lofts at Old Towne Marketplace. The development will consist of 154 rental units and a mixed-use indoor amenity center in four buildings, located at Garden Street and SW Eagles Parkway.
Finally, the Commission approved a site plan for a Burger King to be located in the Mercado Plaza development located at the NW corner of Buckner Tarsney Road and Jefferson Road. The developer is still in discussion with MODOT regarding the placement of two left hand turn lanes, one at Buckner Tarsney Road and one at Jefferson Road.
The site plan was approved with the understanding that the building may move slightly to the north to accommodate additional right of way needed for the left hand turns.
Following a lengthy discussion regarding the proposed site’s parking and drive thru layout, the plan was approved with committee member Elijah Greene the lone ‘no’ vote.
The next meeting of the Planning and Zoning Commission will be held June 10th at 6:30pm.
